Dates of existence
The University of Strathclyde had a long association with Norwegian students. This developed in scale at the end of World War II when Norwegian students, who had tended to go to the northern German universities, turned towards Scotland. Arrangements were made for the admission of a substantial number from 1945 onwards, who studied almost exclusively in the field of engineering.
In 1966, the understanding between the two countries was signalised by the acceptance by His Majesty King Olav V of the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws and by the appointment of the Principal of the University, Dr. S.C. Curran, as Commander of the Order of St. Olav.
